Here is the verbatim press release from Nelson County Sheriff David Hill, received Wednesday night :

On 10/24/2018 the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant in the Piney River area of Nelson County, VA. The search warrant stemmed from the investigation of numerous burglary and larceny complaints over the past few months. Our office recovered numerous items reported stolen from Nelson County and other jurisdictions. Darren Kessler Fitzgerald (Male, 27 YOA) of Piney River, VA was arrested and charged with multiple burglary related warrants. He is being held at the Albemarle/Charlottesville Regional Jail without bond. This investigation is still ongoing as we collaborate with other localities regarding said offenses.

Successful investigations like these are not possible without the cooperation of our citizens. As I often state, we can only be as strong as our community allows us to be, so we thank each of you for your patience, information and dedication to our office and the Nelson community.

Sheriff D.W. Hill
